Here is a photo of the interior from the LA Libbrary:

Forgive my spelling – it’s barely 9 a.m.

No trace of the theater today. It’s apparently been used only for parking for the last 50 years, unless something was built on the space and then torn down in the interim. The location is across the street, more or less, from the Ports O'Call shopping area.

The 1925 LA city directory lists a Victoria Theater at 115 W. Sixth in San Pedro. This may be an incorrectly listed predecessor to the Fox Cabrillo. I won’t add it as a new theater unless we find some further info on the Victoria.

The Fox Cabrillo was at 115 W. Seventh, not Sixth. The Victoria was a different theatre. It’s mentioned, in passing, on a card in the California Index referencing a 1920 article.

Additionally, in the California Index I’ve come across mentions of theatres in San Pedro bearing the following names: Alhambra, Barton, Electric, Empire, Lyric, Star. and Union. No addresses or other details are given for any of them.

I know they were on different streets. I thought maybe it was an error due to the similarity in street numbers. Including the Victoria, there are seven theaters in San Pedro that haven’t been accounted for yet.

Here is another LAPL photo that appears to be from the 1940s:

My Grandfather managed this theater. His name was Clarence “Doc” Crews. He also opened and managed the El Portal in North Hollywood and the Fox Studio City theater.
